Iggy Azalea's Surprise Engagement to LA Laker Nick Young

Let’s be honest, Celebrity engagements are much more exciting when a large Fancy Color Diamond is involved! Australian rapper/singer/model Iggy Azalea, born Amethyst Amelia Kelly, was knocked off her feet when boyfriend and LA Laker guard Nick Young proposed with an enormous 8.15 carat Fancy Intense Yellow diamond engagement ring. Young collaborated with Jason of Beverly Hills jewelers in order to create the perfect ring for his fiancé. Color diamonds have been spotted popping up more and more, especially among celebrities, but this is truly a unique stone and ring.


The Proposal

It is unlikely that Iggy was surprised that Nick proposed, but she was sure caught off guard regarding the timing of the proposal as well as the grandeur of her stunning ring! Nick scored extra points by proposing at his own 30th birthday bash. He clearly cares so much for Iggy that he wanted to share his special day with her and everyone that was gathered together!


The Ring

Featuring a sensational 8.15-carat cushion-shaped Fancy Intense Yellow diamond, the 18K white gold ring also includes 2.28 carats of high quality colorless diamonds, which formed a beautiful halo around the yellow gem. That brings the total carat count to a whopping 10.43 carats! The ring is both classic and full of personality. After all, that is precisely what happens when you introduce a color diamond to a piece of jewelry. The diamond aspect keep the ring as class, traditional, and elegant as can be, while the color factor adds a bit of spice and character.


Though the couple had been dating for a year and a half, the possibility of an engagement only came up recently. Apparently, once Nick puts his mind to something, he sticks with it 100%. He wanted this ring to be Iggy’s dream ring as well as one that properly represented her personal style taste. Well, this $500,000 ring did just that as the “Fancy” singer went straight to social media after the proposal to flaunt her new ring and share her happiness with the world.

Congrats to the happy couple!

We hope that when the big day comes, she gets a gorgeous yellow diamond wedding band to complete her set, like this one:
